Easter White Trash and Cute Gift bags

If you are looking for an easy and quick Easter candy treat this year, you will want to try  White Trash  Candy  Re cipe  I make to celebrate each holiday.  White Trash Recipe The white trash recipe is sometimes called White Chocolate Trail Mix.  It literally takes minutes to make using the microwave to melt the chocolate and then pour over the three other good. The basic recipe for the trash is the same each time.  I just change the color of the M&Ms for what holiday we are celebrating.  I use cute pink, yellow, blue, and purple M&Ms for Easter.  What child doesn't love to get M&Ms in their Easter basket! You can't believe how this stuff is so delicious and highly addictive. I try to give away as much of it as possible to remedy that.   I found these cute little Easter bags at Hobby Lobby this year, and they were perfect for giving them away in. The grandchildren especially loved them! Easter White Trash {

Asparagus Spears with Sesame

Here is a Chinese recipe featuring asparagus, as a simple vegetable marinade or as an easy six ingredient salad, Asparagus Spears with Sesame. The asparagus is briefly boiled and submerged in ice water to cool completely and then topped with a flavorful dressing made with sesame oil, soy sauce, and sugar.  

Southwestern Mango Fruit Salad, {What Do You Think Makes This Salad Southwestern?}

Southwestern Fruit Salad came about from trying to come up with a fruit salad to go with a Southwestern Cornbread Salad that I was serving at r our church gathering.    I just started with the lusciousness of fresh mangoes and went from there. For the dressing, I mix two parts lime juice with one part agave and added a little cayenne pepper to give it a little kick.
